Welcome to St Mary and St Peter's Church in Sunderland

coronavirus update

Due to the updated guidance from the Prime Minister and the Archbishops, our church will no longer be open to the public.  Please be assured of the continued prayers of the church for our Parish and all God's people during this difficult and unprecedented time.  We hope to continue to offer daily reflections on the Gospel of the day and we will still offer a Eucharist on behalf of us all.  This will be offered by one priest alone at home.  If you have any queries or prayer requests, please do be in touch and we will continue to try and help within the Government and Church guidelines.  Stay safe.  God bless.


During this time when we cannot meet for Public Worship we will be posting a daily reading and reflection.   Please do use this to help deepen your own faith and journey with God during this time.  Please click on the link to share these thoughts.

Unfortunately we know people may be struggling and need more help with food at these difficult times.  If you follow this link


It will lead you to a list of Foodbanks and opening times in Sunderland.  If you have any further queries, please be in touch and we'll help as much as we can.  

The Home of Anglican Worship in Thorney Close, Springwell and Plains Farm

St Mary and St Peter's is part of the Group of the Annunciation. The Anglican (Church of England) churches that cover most of south west Sunderland. This parish serves the areas of Springwell, Thorney Close, Humbledon and Plains farm. As part of the group of the Annunciation we work closely alongside with the parishes of St Chad and St Mary, St Thomas and St Oswald's.

Here at St Mary & St Peters we come together regularly for worship and special services. Those who attend St Mary and St Peter's find a warm welcome and soon find themselves involved in the life of this Christian Community. People are encouraged to develop and contribute their own gifts to enrich the life of the church as a whole.
